Designing for CNC and Laser-cutting in Tinkercad

This course explores techniques for using TinkerCAD to design 2D objects and illustrates them by taking you through a project to build an LCD enclosure. The course also touches on some techniques to correct design errors that may be encountered late in the design process without having to revisit every part. Software required: TinkerCAD.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi everyone! My name is Samer Najia. I'm a software developer, but I have a background as a mechanical engineer. I work primarily for the federal government. My current work projects include building a full-scale aircraft, CNC machine building, three-dimensional printer design development and construction, computer-aided design and engineering design, and all things aviation, anything that flies. In this course, we're going to learn how to design for CNC machining or laser cutting using an LCD enclosure as our course project. Some of the key takeaways from watching this course include learning how to design for parts that are primarily assembled from two-dimensionally cut parts to develop our design so we can see the entire assembly in Tinkercad, detect and correct obvious mistakes in our design as we proceed, make use of available off-the-shelf parts and data-- to complete our design. By the end of our training, you'll have learned how to design components that assemble into an object comprised of parts that are primarily two dimensional, as well as visualize your entire system of parts in Tinkercad. I'm very excited to work with Digital-Tutors and share these techniques with you. So let's get started with our first lesson.
